  • Why do I struggle to sleep?

    There are many things that can make it hard to sleep. It can be hard to calm down and sleep when you're stressed or anxious. Your body's normal sleep-wake cycle can be thrown off by bad sleep habits like sleeping at odd times or spending too much time in front of a screen before bed. Sleep problems like sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome, or long-term pain can make it hard to sleep. Sleep problems can also be caused by things in the surroundings, like noise, light, or a bed that isn't cozy. Making choices about your lifestyle, like drinking alcohol or coffee right before bed, can mess up your sleep habits. Mental illnesses like sadness and PTSD can also make it hard to sleep. Figuring out what's causing the problem and fixing it by making changes to your lifestyle, learning how to deal with stress, or maybe even seeing a doctor can help you sleep better.
